Monotype has announced the Monotype Baseline™ platform, a cloud-based developer platform that offers access to tens of thousands of fonts. The solution is designed to help OEMs, independent software vendors and developers build software products and connected devices that deliver the best user experiences.

Recently I came upon a typeface class called, Realist(you guys have probably heard about it). Is it the same as Grostesque, because I saw it used for typefaces such as Akzidenz and Franklin Gothic. If not, can you please tell me about some of its characteristics.

I basically know(I think) all the general classes but can someone list them and their defining characteristics.

Thanks

Hello everybody,

I've been reading a lot about typefaces and how different kinds can be combined in order to create layers of meaning. Type foundries usually suggest pairings for their own fonts, most notably Hoefler & Frere Jones and Font Bureau. I am looking to create an unusual mix of moods for a personal branding project:

- Hearty, friendly
- Weird, quirky
- Contemplative, dramatic

You can think of this mix as the equivalent of a Wes Anderson, Sylvain Chomet, or even a Spike Jonze film. Sort of like what film critic Peter Rainer writes about Spike Jonze's film, Being John Malkovich:
“It is hard to mix moods -- the film is manic, subtle, comic and vaguely sad -- but [Jonze] does it masterfully.”

Why are type foundries more intent on catching people who use pirated fonts rather than catching those make them available in the first place. There is a website dedicated to providing free Helvetica and Gotham fonts, why dont they do something about that rather than catching some lone, broke designer. Yeah it is illegal but doing something about it is ineffective and inefficient. Why not just try stopping the websites that distribute these fonts for free. Maybe you will scare some people who use these fonts but that is it about it. You just wasted a whole lot of time pursuing one offender and what are you gonna get out of it ? Pretty much nothing. So why not try to cut off the root of this problem.

Hey Guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am looking into the use of Bevel fonts (see example image below) and I am struggling to find a history of the font - where it came about/why it came about/any decent foundries that specialise in Beveled fonts.

If anyone knows anything about Bevel fonts i'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Robyn

H&M Typefaces

I'm doing a brand identity project for school on H&M and so I need help identifying the fonts they currently use.
Their website is here: http://www.hm.com/us/

I know that Didot is one, but I cannot recognize the sans serif fonts. Please help.
I'm also attaching a screen shot of their website.

Thanks!
